Statement of Secretary Martin Andanar on the celebration of Eid’l Fitr


We extend our warmest greetings to our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Philippines and across the globe on this special day as they celebrate Eid’l Fitr or the Festival of Breaking the Fast.

Although it was a challenge to abstain from sharing meals and praying together throughout the blessed month of Ramadan, may you all continue to praise Allah for bestowing upon you the strength and courage not only in obeying His commandments, but also in facing the effects of the pandemic.

May this renewed spiritual attainment strengthen your resilience and commitment to the exemplary Islamic virtues, especially at this time when we continue to face the challenges and uncertainty brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We ask everyone to continue to observe the guidelines of their respective community quarantines and observe social distancing during their celebration.

We wish you all a meaningful Eid’l Fitr!
